Secret Agent Man

A story do drugs politics and strange bedfellows.... More fraud, and lies are going on behind the scenes. And then comes the double agents within our own government.
The book contains a number of heanous acts that are performed without any remorse....lots of bravado, and high risk moments throughout the book. The book isa solid 4 star ,but not quite a 5.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Had I been able to yes, I would have loved to have listened to it all at once. I ended up listening to it in about 3 segments though.


Any additional comments?

The Lazarus File is a great story of a soldier who was declared dead, given a new identity and life, and used by the government for undercover work. Diving into the world of transporting illegal drugs and ruthless drug lords, he is in for a crazy ride.

I had a hard time putting this one down, it is fast paced and full of exciting scenes. I really enjoyed it and can't wait to see what Taylor comes up with next. 5 Stars.
